A Special Thanks To Aquariann

This lovely artists has made our shop a banner and an avatar. She took one of our images and made it into our Etsy avatar, that was so nice of her. I was struggling with trying to make a banner that she stepped in and helped. I really like it and it makes me feel like I am about to step into a portal to visit the old world. One must cheek out her shop she has fairies every where!

A little about the artists:

Kristin lives near the sea, and has rarely been too far from its glittering waters. She was born in California at some ungodly hour in the morning on February 8th, 1982 - which makes her an Aquarius completely and utterly. Her parents moved several times before she was old enough to really remember - they just kept traveling east until they ran into the ocean again. She has been living on the east coast ever since. Although she grew up in Bethany Beach, Delaware, she attended Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, and currently resides in Milton, Delaware.

Even though she majored in graphic design which principles certainly contribute to her art, she's a mostly self-taught artist. Messy mediums such as paint and charcoal have never been very nice to her, but the smooth glide of colored pencils is magic. She can't quite explain her technique - she just colors until she achieves the vibrance that suits the piece.

Although her fantasy prints are professionally printed by deviantArt, she scans all her own original artwork and makes each bookmark, magnet, sticker, and card with the help of her computer, Nightcrawler, and his trusty crew of inanimate helpers.
